John Doe, Richard Roe 7ry
Jointly To Open New Jail
John Doe and Richard Roe are at ( then diving into bed. The police, wise-

it again. Those two perennial police
court habitues ran afoul of Ann Ar-
bor's guardians of the law yesterday
afternoon and are now incarcerated
in the local bastile, awaiting trial on
many and varied charges.
Richard, it seems, became weary
with the ways of this world, although
police reported him as merely suffer-
ing a terrific hangover, and decided
to end it all by plunging into the
Huron River, near Saunder's boat-
Two of the city's gendarmes, hap-
pening by, attempted to forestall
Richard, but he was too quick for
them. As he poised for the plunge
the officers darted forward to grab
him, but, with a dazzling exhibition
of footwork, Richard turned, and
pulled them both in with him. After
that the party became rougher, as
policemen have a somewhat under-
standable aversion to being man-
handled by a drunk.
When Richard was finally brought
to police headquarters, he evidently
mistook the office for another part
of the Huron, for he continued his
diving-act, first plunging. to the floor
with hands lifted as if in prayer, and

ly knowing when enough is enough,
left him there for the time being.
John Doe, to return to the second
protagonist, presented an entirely dif-
ferent case. Posing as a blind man,
he had been begging alms on a down-
town street corner. According to the
patrolman on duty there, John had
evidently been imbibing too deeply
and was cavorting around merrily. So
the arm of the law dragged him to
the station.
But when he got there, John gave
the office attaches quite a surprise.
Looking around him, he asked, in ac-
cents untutored and profane, why,
for goodness' sake, they had him in a
police statiorl. When the officers had
recovered from the shock of finding
John quite able to see, in addition to
being possessed of a forceful and
eloquent vocabulary, they placed him
in a cell also.
As a fitting conclusion to their day's
exploits John and Richard have be-
come the first prisoners to be taken
to the new city jail. The Does and
Roes of this world may well remin-
isce in days to come: "Now, when

Sophs Cringe At
coming Onslaught
With SavageFrosh
Class spirit, the joy of freshmen
and the bane ofsophomore existence,
is going to flourish with revived en-
ergy this year in the opinions of
campus leaders of student activities.
In fact the large enrollment this fall
gives promise of greater than usual
In recent years the freshman con-
tingents have managed to maintain
a margin of victories in the organ-
ized fall and spring games while the
smaller but desperate sophomore
bands have scored numerous success-
es in undercover forays.
The height of this activity occur-
red two years ago when the present
junior class was in its budding in-
fancy. One frozen, moonlight night
a picked band of the class of '35 si-
lently assembled and, with grim and
purposeful steps, went a-hunting.
The quest was not fruitless, for
soon two quivering greenhorns were
in their grasp and on their way
north-the destination being the Hu-
ron river. The silence of the crystal-
clear night was interrupted by two
splashes followed by some eloquent
burbling -and two bedraggled fresh-
men swished their weary way home.

Will Lower Bonded Debt
By $15,000 Payment On
In marked contrast to the situation
of many school systems in this and
neighboring states, the present finan-
cial condition of the Ann Arbor pub-
lic schools is highly satisfactory, it
was stated yesterday by Lee M. Thurs-
ton, assistant superintendent of
schools and treasurer of the Board of
In spite of rather serious tax del-
inquency in the past, he said, the
schools are now running on a fairly
normal program, and further express-
ed the belief that the schools would
probably be able to keep open for the
full nine and one-half month term.
Last year the Ann Arbor schools
received $25,000 from the state under
the provisions of the newly enacted
Sias-Thatcher law, and the board is
hoping to receive a somewhat larger
amount for the support of the school
during the present term, Mr. Thurs-
ton stated.
The bonded debt will be reduced by
a payment of $15,000 of principal on
Oct. 1, he said. The Ann Arbor school
district is one of the few in this state
able to borrow money on credit,
should the need arise.
The number of teachers is approxi-
mately the same as last year, it was
reported at the office of Otto W. Hais-
ley, Superintendent of Schools. The
enrollment of pupils has likewise un-
dergone little change, although some
classes were overcrowded at the out-
set of the term.

At Opposition Shown By
GRAND RAPIDS, Sept. 28- () -
To avert a fight that threatened to
tear their party wide open, Democrat-
ic leaders compromised in their State
Convention here today. A slate of
candidates for State offices contain-
ing two friendly to Gov. William A.
Comstock and the same number ac-
ceptable to Arthur J. Lacy, the new
'party standard bearer, was nomi-
The selections were: Guy M. Wilson,
of Flint, for secretary of state and
John J. Stack, renominated for audi-
tor general, Lacy choices; and Pat-i
rick H. O'Brien nominated for attor-
ney-general and Theodore I. Fry, re-
nominated for State treasurer, the
candidates of the Comstock group. To!
avoid a rift that might have thrown
the convention into a deadlock the
administration faction had to aban-
don the hope to beat Stack with Mar-
vin L. Coon of Escanaba. The' Lacy
forces, on the other hand, had to
withdraw its insistent demands that
Attorney-General O'Brien be left off
the ticket.
On the only test vote, Lacy seems
to have a majority in the convention.
The convention supported him in
seating a Kemp County delegation'
viewed as friendly to Lacy. Despite
this show of power, Lacy leaders were
sufficiently alarmed at the fight
shown by the administration and by ]
Frank A. Piccard, senatorial candi-
date, and the antics orthe delegates
to consent to a compromise.

quested that any students interested
in writing either manuscripts or
music contact Union officials at the
student offices.

NRA Keynote,
Asserts Leader
Clay Williams Chosen As
Chairman Of Industrial
Recovery Board
Roosevelt To Pass
On Policies Of NRA
Sujden Changes Of Policy
To Be Suppressed, Says
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. -(P) -
Administration a s s u r a n c e s that
"sweeping changes by sudden fiat will
be discouraged" went out to business
today from the now multiple-headed
Blue Eagle Administration.
This word came directly from Don-
ald R. Richberg, lawyer who helped
mold NRA policies in their infancy,
and now directs an administration
committee specially created to advise
Mr. Roosevelt on NRA and other re-
covery policies.
Simultaneously, Clay Williams.
wealthy fifty-year-old industrialist,
was chosen to head the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board now vested
with all the business-bossing powers
once wielded by Hugh S. Johnon.
Roosevelt to Supervise Groups
Over both groups - policy making
and executive -- Mr. Roosevelt tight-
ened reins of personal supervision in
guiding NRA toward next winter's
legislative gauntlet.
Richberg's assurance to industry
that no sudden upheavals need be
expected, was given at a crowded press
conference called, he said, to avoid
"misunderstanding and mis-interpre-
tation" of the relationships between
his emergency industrial committee
and the new NRA board.
"The most important service at the
present time in NRA," he said, "is to
provide continuing assurance against
sudden or sweeping changes o policy,.
assurance of deliberatiVe 'tieor t d
full discussion and an opportunityt
for those involved to be heard. The'
absence of sweeping changes applies1
to personnel as well as anything else."
Then Richberg, speaking empha-
tically as the reporters pressed closeY
to his desk, added:
"The President will decide the pol-
icies. Our committee couldn't veto
a decision by the Industrial Recovery
Board, but I would say the President,k
through our committee, could."
Not to Intrude on Board
With a smile, Richberg said that his
industrial committee will make the
recommendations as to the course ofI
NRA directly to the President, butE
"will intrude very little advice to the
new board itself."
The suddenness of the creation of
the new NRA administrative board
evidenced Mr. Roosevelt's desire forf
pressing his reorganization plans. Sid-E
ney Hillman and Leon Marshall, the
two Labor members were the only3
ones in the city today except for the7
ex-officio pair - Blackwell Smith,
NRA legal advisor, and Leon Hender-
son, economic advisor.c
Hillman and Marshall, in a long
distance telephone hookup with Wil-
liams and A. D. Whiteside, the two
industrialists, elected Williams chair-
man and Marshall executive secre-
tary. The fifth member --Prof. Wal-
ton Hamilton, of Yale - could not be
reached because he was on a train

hurrying to Washington.
Wlliams' selection as chairman,
after being the number one member
named by Mr. Roosevelt, was re-
garded as an obvious Presidential

Refuse To Readmit Three
Big International Unions
To Membership
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28-(P) --
Directly defying William Green; presi-
dent, and the executive council of the
American Federation of Labor, thet
Building Trades Department of the
A. F. of L. refused today to reconsider
its refusal to readmit three big inter-
national unions to membership in the
Green, referring to the position of
the building trades body as illegal,
indicated that the fight to force re-j
admission of the three unions to the1
building trades department would be
carried to the floor of the Federation
convention which opens here Monday.
This, the first major break in the
ranks of labor, assembled for what]
leaders said would be a crucial gath-
ering, occurred just after Green had]
arrived and proclaimed the intentionF
of the Federation to point the way1
out of the unemployment situation.
The three unions withdrew fromi
the Building Trades Department sev-
eral years ago. The Department's
reaffiliation committee held that their
readmission would disrupt depart-
ment harmony and the convention
upheld that position.
Green, in predicting that the A. F.
of L. will point the way out of the,
country's unemployment situation,
said 25,000,000 American workers werej
depending upon his organization to
offer a remedy for unemployment,
"and to insist upon its being accept-
ed and applied."
Strikers Will
Return Monday
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 -() --
Textile strikes who have been refused
re-employment were ordered today by
union chiefs in a strategy move to
apply for work next Monday. '
Acting upon the direct recommen-
dation of the new Textile Labor Board
erstwhile strike leaders adopted this
procedure as a means of gaining gen-
eral redetermination of the basis of
discrimination complaints already
filed with the board.
By this method will be ascertained
the exact number of cases to be
adjudicated by that tribunal.
"I conferred with Textile Board to-
day," said Francis J. Gorman, na-
tional strike committee chairman,
"and I was authorized by the board
to notify all local unions that have
discrimination cases to send the work-
ers to the mill on Monday morning
